. >> made in the usa. now the speaker's looking ahead to the next 24 hours. michelle obama is the star attraction. >> right, right. in the way that ann romney was the star attraction for her husband at the republican convention in tampa, first lady michelle obama will kick things off tomorrow, as everyone knows or says, the first lady is the president's biggest secret weapon. she's someone who connects with voters, and particularly, the folks who are here. i'm sure they are much looking forward to her being the first lady. >> whether she goes on letterman, leno, does "the view" or other shows, as well as serious interviews, michelle obama is, you know, much the secret weapon and the whole obama family. >> remember in the first campaign she was a little reluctant and a lot of criticism she got was harsh, but now she's all in, both feet in, and on her own accord. >> jonathan capehart, see you later. thank you, my friend. >>> that does it if they are edition of "andrea mitchell reports." tomorrow, bill burton and peter hart joining us. our colleague tamron hall has a look what's up next o
